Join us in Bangalore to learn how India’s top change leaders use awareness to inspire action in the Leadership Development journey.
UPDATE on Dec. 20, 2018 – Thank you to everyone who attended our conference! Please contact us if you’d like to be notified of future events. Please follow our blog for recaps and insights from this year’s event.
With change accelerated by cultural and generational shifts, the leadership development space has become far too complex to be managed through traditional training and coaching methods. A systemic approach that aligns individuals and teams to a larger perspective of organizational needs has become critical. Coaching needs to adapt to this need.
In less than a decade, Coacharya has evolved into a recognized global leadership development alliance. We stand out because our 500+ credentialed coaches focus in blending Eastern philosophy and culture with Western methodologies and strategies.
We’re excited to grow Coacharya’s impact with our first ever leadership conference. Please join us to explore the past, present and future of Leadership Development.
